Jakub Vrana‘s day with the Stanley Cup in the Czech Republic honored a promise he made in July: a trip to Vrana’s grandmother’s grave.
Vrana’s grandmother, Jana Hejduková, passed during the season, and the Czech forward first opened up about it in an interview with iSport.CZ.
“There are a few places [I want to take the Cup],” the Capitals forward said. “For now, the hockey rink in Letňany and then I was thinking about many places. I’ll take it to a graveyard, my grandma died during the season and– there are a few places, I’ll see.”
The Capitals sent their video crew to cover the touching moment and released a behind-the-scenes video of Vrana’s day Saturday.
